AAA: SWB (40-28) won 8-4. Rehabbing RF Aaron Judge 1 for 2, solo HR, 2 walks, strikeout. It’ll be a tough decision who goes when Judge returns soon.
1B Mike Ford (.320-16-38) solo HR. CF Mike Tauchman 3-run HR. C Kyle Higashioka solo HR). (Ford, Tauchman and Higashioka all homered in the first inning, Tauchman and Higashioka going back-to-back). SS Tyler Wade 2 hits. 2B Thairo Estrada 2 hits.
As mentioned in the other post, with Voit, Encarnacion, Ford here, and Gittens (AA), Greg Bird is finding himself squeezed out. Heck, former major leaguer Logan Morrison, here at AAA SWB, HIMSELF is squeezed out.
Randall Delgado 3 R in 6 IP for the win.
AA: Trenton (38-27) won 6-0 on a 2-hit shutout. Wait until you see the numbers Deivi Garcia put up. 1B Chis Gittens (see mention above) 2 hits, 2 RBI. C Kellin Deglan 2 hits. CF Rashad Crawford 2 hits, RBI.
Ok, ready for the numbers for the 20 year old Garcia, who the Yanks are VERY HIGH on?
Garcia (W, 3-2, 3.00) 6 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 15 K.
Combined with 3 relievers, Trenton struck out 19.
High A: Tampa (29-39 overall) split. They lost the completion of Monday’s suspended game, 6-4 in 10 innings. CF Estevan Florial 2 hits. 1B Dermis Garcia 3 hits, RBI.
They won the regularly scheduled game, 6-5, getting six in the top of the seventh and last inning (if DH, minors go only 7 innings). DH Florial 2 RBI. 1B Garcia 2 hits, 2 RBI. CF Pablo Olivares 2 hits.
Low A: Charleston off, because the South Atlantic League had their all-star game. Charleston’s Division, the South, lost 6-2.
Charleston players: PH/LF Brandon Lockridge 1 for 2, 2 -run PH HR for the South’s only runs.
PH/DH Mickey Gasper 0 for 2. LF Canaan Smith 1 for 2.
Not a good night for one of the pitchers.
P Alexander Vizcaino (L, BS, 1) 1/3 IP, 5 R, 3 H, 1 W, 1 K.
